Due to Covid-19, the Museum has restructured the School Tour program to be a virtual experience that offers students the opportunity to experience works of art from their home or classroom. Available as English or Bilingual Spanish programs, Virtual School Tours support various models of in-person or distance learning.
Nevada Museum of Art School Tours take a student-centered approach. Through inquiry-based, standards-aligned, grade-specific content, K-12 students are encouraged to explore interdisciplinary STEAM-based arts integration topics while making meaningful connections with art from the Museum’s collections and exhibitions. Tours are aligned with National Core Arts Standards and Nevada Academic Content Standards.

Virtual School Tours
Sharing artwork from the Museum, Gallery Educators will engage students in an inquiry-based conversation followed by a facilitated hands-on art project. Art projects can be completed with very basic materials readily found at home or in the classroom.
The Virtual School Tour will be hosted on Zoom with a link provided by the Museum, or an existing Zoom meeting provided by you. Tours can also be adapted for a different preferred platform (Teams, Google, etc.). If supplying the link, teachers will need to enable screen-sharing or make our Gallery Educator a co-host.
